The prehistoric site of Botta Striera is located north of S-chanf at an altitude of 2,020 metres. Excavations have revealed evidence of settlement. To the north, in a clearing known as Prospiz, is a dramatic standing stone about 2.2m tall.

From Zuoz, the trail first leads leisurely along the Inn to S-chanf. Past the beautiful Engadin houses, the hiking trail climbs up into the forest on the right. The trail continues in a wide curve up the gravel road until a turn-off to the left points the way to the Botta Striera settlement. Take the same path back to the gravel road and continue to Acla Laret. With a wonderful view up to the Piz da la Margna, the trail descends comfortably to Zuoz. Passing the beautiful village square of Zuoz, you reach the railway station again.
